It has to be more involved than that. If the 12/13 interface
breaks a page, and hence the first item on the next page is 14
(because 13 is supposed to be missing), do people wonder what
happened to 13? In the middle of the page to go 11, 12, 14, 15
is probably okay.
I'm not superstitious, but lots of people are.
